Re: Best 'new to you' music of 2012
Total agreement on Neil Young. New stuff is great. Latest tour with Crazy Horse has been stellar.
Now I'm an old fart but I do still search out the interwaves for something that strikes me in the hurdly-gurdlies.
I discovered this band during the early summer at one of the many live-streamed festivals on youtube. Really cool Caribbeanesque/Devoistic/post-punk synth pop with well developed progressions, vocals and lyrics.
"We're the keepers, while we sleep in America our house is burning down"
"Don't look ahead there's stormy weather
Another road block in our way
But if we go, we go together
Our hands are tied here if we stay."
And I don't normally go out for this kind of stuff but on a rare occasion something sticks to my aural confabulators. Give them a listen. It may or may not tweak your tootsies:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tLN90w2er1khttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qjWJkgnCOMshttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DhB5NeDEth8
And this was the year that I rediscovered Al Kooper years after being bummed out about what BS&T turned into after he left. Finally got my hands on this CD (Soul of a Man). Highly recommended; http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g9FibOWT3j8
